. the russians have a key port on the mediterranean that their navy bases out of in syria. they're certainly worried if the rebels win or when the rebels win look like now is a possibility that they will lose that port and this diplomatic maneuver may be a chance to save a little bit of face and influence in that new syria. patti ann? patti ann: leland, what other powers are sort of participating behind the scenes in this proxy war? >> reporter: lots going on here. this is for all intent and purpose as war between iran, saudi arabia and other gulf states. iran supports the, iran supports the regime. saudi arabia, the other gulf states are supporting the rebels. they're willing to supply money and weapons for as long as both sides are willing to kill each other. they have little interest in a peace deal and a lot to lose by losing or their side inside syria losing. this will be a very different situation in libya. in libya, qaddafi fell, everything was over. now looks like the syrian civil war could go on for years. right now, patti ann, about 45,000 people killed there sectarian violence con
